Joni Mitchell - Clouds (Reprise K44070)

Joni Mitchell's second album release was eagerly anticipated at the time, her reputation going very much before her with two of the songs already known through interpretations by both Judy Collins and Fairport Convention prior to the album's release in 1969. Joni had already uprooted from her native Canada to record her debut album in New York with David Crosby in 1967 and by this time had moved once again to California, recording CLOUDS in Hollywood with the help of Stephen Stills. Once again illustrated by her own sleeve artwork, CLOUDS features an impressionistic self portrait, an image of the artist most remembered.
